The weather was perfect for our recent Open House celebrating the Marshes Light Marina. We enjoyed Carolina blue skies and a light easterly breeze, a perfect day to be on the water.
Thanks to all who came by and big thanks to Manteo Marine for bringing some boats over for display and to Kitty Hawk Water Sports who provided free sailing demonstrations from the Marshes Light beach.
There were over 100 entries in our drawing for the use of a boat slip for a year. Congratulations to Harry W. of Massachusetts who won the boat slip drawing!
We are now turning our sights to the planning of the next Marshes Light Fishing Tournament. This year’s format will be different, with four categories of fish – king mackerel, dolphin, tuna and wahoo. There will be two days of fishing and it is scheduled for the weekend of October 14-15, 2011.
